This is the original widescreen print, which is significantly sharper than the 4:3 print here at IA. According to IMDB this version also is in the public domain. Anyway, how could you not like a movie with dialog like this: "We balled and we balled and we balled, until he dropped dead." Besides, there are many happy endings, and it gives a whole new meaning to, "What's the buzz?" Directed by Denis Sanders. Released in 1973. (a.k.a. "Graveyard Tramps")

Mexico and Southern California are the playgrounds for this 2am Theater’s menagerie of monstrous nightmares. Tonight’s drive-in scream fest opens with previews of shrieks to come. Then in “The Black Scorpion” Richard Denning and Mara Corday can’t prevent gigantic arachnids from attacking Mexico City. Next in “The Monster That Challenged the World” it’s the mollusks’ turn when gruesome giant slugs eat delicious beach babes and everyone else in the Salton Sea. (bon appetit!)

This print is much sharper and cleaner than the existing IA copies. Another outstanding suspense thriller from Hitchcock's British years. If it isn't as popular as "The 39 Steps" or "The Lady Vanishes," it's probably because it's mounted on a smaller scale than those well-known classics. It also has a plot element some audiences found disturbing. Based on Joseph Conrad's novel, "The Secret Agent." Directed by Alfred Hitchcock. UK release 1936. US release 1937....
